In Progress: "Risen on Earth": Winter: Air – Inhaling – Processing – Rising
Our first snow today in New York City . . . impossibly early, impossibly big flakes coming down for a few hours this morning, weighing down the branches in worrying ways, which still have leaves on them. The quiet that has settled on the forest rises from the transformed water and brings an exquisite hush to the air and light. There are no signs of the snow stopping yet.

Suffering arises from the false sense of untrue duality, which yet remains ever a mystery to most of us embodied on this plane, and one few are able to solve. A most powerful question, it seems to me, is, "Can I learn through joy rather than suffering?" This also seems to compound the mystery, and to confound the thinking mind; perhaps this is necessary. The Risen do not think or use thoughts, which arise from an earthly, terrestrial ego-mind. What an incredible, awesome experience of interacting with, and observing others, without thought! And here appears a clue to the answer to the original question about suffering, which is that without thought, there is only joy. Joy is the sun which always shines. Thought blocks and distort the light of Truth, which is joy itself.
I, too, am becoming more and more convinced that these terms, "risen, rising" -- which appear to be rather new in referencing survival and the afterlife -- are finding increasing validation in many ways. I sometimes have worried that I was discerned those terms incorrectly, as the living information coming to me from Tim and others was vast, complex, deep, layered (infospheres). Only yesterday I was reading a rather hard book to find by the Christian New Thought mystic, Neville Goddard, called "Immortal Man." His language is often veiled in ways that are hard to understand - although I am fairly good with metaphysical language - and he says that he does not support reincarnation as the world teaches it...for scripture does not teach it. It does teach a second birth, which is resurrection. He elaborates that all people living on earth are "dreaming a dream" which for most, does not terminate when they die...they are instead restored to life in a world just like this terrestrial one (but is not actually it, but like it) - but eventually we will all "awaken as God", and this is what is meant by the son resurrecting. This all dovetails perfectly with what Tim brings forth in the chapter on reincarnation on our book. If we awaken - by correcting the imbalance brought about by a dominating ego-mind - we will continue on in this awakened state when the body dies - and this awakened transition is Rising.
